Let's start with the members: Jandro: Lead Vocals, Rythm Guitar Danel: Secondary Vocals, Lead Guitar Pedro: Bass Alex: Drums Melvin: Congas Danel since a very early age was singing children and religious songs, which at the request of his managers by that time became love song. This ended when his puberty changed his voice. Jandro came to study at his same school and intruduced him to Metal, with Stryper's CD "To Hell with the Devil". Jandro and Danel jammed for a while. But ended up appart making bands of their own. Danel formed a band with Pedro and Alex and Hector Rivera on the lead vocals called Konciencia, which was of Spiritual Music, while Jandro formed a band named Ilusion, Ricky Ortega (our current manager): Drums, Oscar: Bass, Ferrer: El. Lead Guitar and Jandro on the rythm. Ilusion played mostly Guns n' Roses music and other top metal songs. Konciencia changed it's name to Guardian Angel to play metal and power ballads a little more secular. Time passed by and when Danel had to leave to Mayaguez to study togheter with Jandro in 1993, Guardian Angel fell in a slow deterioration, while Ilusion kept on playing just for the fun of it. In 1994 Danel formed another band with Hector (previously of Guardian) called Monte Calvario with fellow guitarrist Agdel Irlanda (who joined later Detrás de la Raya), bassist Rey (currently singer of Overlord)and drumer Noel Sepulveda (who left to NY a year later and returned in 1997 to Puerto Rico). Monte Calvario did only two short presentations and broke in 1995. Danel and Jandro continued separately to compose music, mostly love songs and Alternative, Metal and Rock. In 1998 Danel joined Ilusion, replacing Ferrer, a month later Pedro replaced Oscar because he left the band for lack of time. Ilusion broke six months later because Ricky had became to busy with his work and studies, which didn't let him come to Orocovis from the Metropolitan Area for rehearsals. Jandro and Danel started writing music alone and recording in Jandro's home studio, until they wrote "Lo que son las Cosas" and decided to name their band La Cosa and to start searching for new musicians. Later on they wrote 5 more songs and disgusted because the musicians didn't appear decide to make La Cosa. Depressed they went to a little bar near the studio. And just when they started to drink their first beer, Melvin appeared in a motorcycle with a conga in his back, followed by Pedro in his car and Alex on foot. It was unbelievable. That day La Cosa begun as it is now.
